An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
“I really do think that the sweet spot for our country is pro-growth tax reform,” Corker told reporters after addressing the Tennessee Business Roundtable. “That’s lowering marginal rates but doing away with loopholes (in order to) generate more revenues — and certainly economic growth — linked to long-term entitlement reform.
“I do feel consensus building around that concept on both sides of the aisle, and our first best opportunity to deal with that is going to be during the lame-duck session. I am convinced that over the next couple of years, this issue is going to be addressed.”
Oh yeah…it’s an election year alright! Excuse me Senator, but what have you been doing the last 5 1/2 years? Twiddling your thumbs and collecting a paycheck? The country has been DEMANDING tax reform for years, and just now, y’all are ‘gaining traction’ on one of the very issues the American people, YOUR bosses by the way, have been calling, emailing, and writing letters about? Seriously?
A wee bit of advice…. Leaders lead. Followers go along to get along. We don’t want any more of the ‘getting along’ nonsense. We want strong leaders who will stand up FOR We, The People, not ‘work with’ those who are to destroy us.
Another piece of advice… SCRAP THE WHOLE DAMN SYSTEM! What we have now is MUCH longer than the Holy Bible, and that Book is filled with a lot of common sense rules. The tax code is nothing more than plain ol’ horse manure, unfair to anyone, complete gobbledygook, that even those who ‘wrote it’ don’t understand. Flat or Fair, either one would make more sense, and likely generate more revenue for the country. Second, stop freakin’ spending our money on crap. We honestly don’t care why salmon swim upstream, or any thing about the sex lives of fruit flies! Our money is meant for the common defense of our people, not some moron’s pet project to see what a shrimp, which should be eaten, will do on a treadmill. Spending millions to find out why American vote? Seriously?
If you yahoos up in D.C. are serious, start taking a good hard look at the garbage you spend our money on, to make yourselves feel good, but does NOTHING to improve life in these “United” States. Use our money to secure the border, kick out criminals, shoot to kill if necessary, and shred every single page of the absurd ‘tax code’, and start from scratch. Y’all don’t need our money, all of you are a LOT better off than the average American, so cut your paychecks to what the lowest rank military man or woman earns. Kill the perks! Like I said, y’all don’t need our money, you did just fine before y’all got into office, and started raiding OUR piggy bank.
Common sense would tell MOST people, if you don’t have the money, you don’t spend it. Not D.C.! I mean, after all, it’s not their own money they are spending, and sucking out of the pockets of hard working Americans. It doesn’t bother them one bit when a company has to move its operations overseas, or go bankrupt due to all the regulations, taxes, and, let’s throw this one in there….union demands. But then, common sense hasn’t been a requirement for our capital since George Washington was president.
P.S. You may rank higher in the ‘conservative’ category than Lamar Alexander, but I honestly don’t think that being in the 60% range is anything to brag about!
